A Lexington criminal defense attorney and software developer is launching a new web app at Unconvicted.com. The free app gives everyone with a Kentucky criminal record the opportunity to have their criminal record screened for felonies, misdemeanors, and dismissals that can be expunged under the recently passed House Bill 40. The app is entirely web based and works on computers, tablets, and smart phones. Anyone with a Kentucky criminal record can access the site and take the free evaluation in less than ten minutes.
Within three days of completing the evaluation, an experienced defense attorney will confirm the results of the app by checking the users’ court records. Upon confirmation, the attorney will contact the user with the good news, and explain easy and affordable options for proceeding with the expungement.
“House Bill 40 is an amazing opportunity for many Kentuckians, but it is a complicated maze of statutes, forms, and procedures,” said attorney and founder Brad Clark. “I wanted to make the process as simple and easy as possible, so that every Kentuckian that has served their sentence and stayed out of trouble will have access to the information and services they need to clear their record.”
Unconvicted.com is operated by Clark Law PLLC, a law firm and technology startup based in Lexington, KY. Clark Law is dedicated to using technology and the Internet to increase Kentuckians’ access to justice. Clark Law is operated out of The Plantory, a coworking hub for community-minded businesses and nonprofit organizations. Starting in May, the firm plans to expand to Louisville and Covington to continue the mission to create second chances.

Mr. Clark, I do not need expungement. My church makes a Special Collection each year with a Social Justice Slant. We usually collect around $1,000. I know there is a fee involved when a person files for expungement in the courts ($250?) Would you or someone who has benefitted from HB 40 be willing to attend and participate in one of our church services next fall or spring? (All our services are very secular in scope.) The money could be used to help 5 people who cannot afford the fee.
My church is Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church in Louisville. I joined 15 years ago when someone told me that “a UU prayer is a good deed.” We live it as you are doing, too. Would you let me know if you are interested, please?
